questions about self-defense in the be united states of america. in recent years we've seen a dramatic increase in laws expanding the situation in which a person can legally use deadly force in response to a perceived threat. florida passed the first of this new wave of stand your ground laws in 2005. prior to 2005, florida law held that a person outside his home could not use deadly force and then claim self-defense if the person could have safely avoided the confrontation. this, quote, duty of safe retreat, closed quote, sought to prevent public disputes from escalating into violence. but the gun lobby pushed to change florida's law so people could shoot someone who threatened them without first trying to avoid a confrontation. florida wasn't the first state to adopt the stand your ground principle, but florida's 2005 law expanded the principle in several dramatic new ways. first, the law grants criminal and civil of immunity for use withs of deadly force -- for uses of deadly force in stand your ground situations. second, it replaces a defendant's burden of proving reasonableness wi
. stand your ground laws, like all self-defense laws, require the heightened showing of necessity. the particular version of florida's 2005 law differs drastically from other laws and from the common law of self-defense in three respects. first, these laws remove the common law duty to retreat. this emboldens individuals to escalate a situation. the duty to retreat implies a duty to safely retreat. second, they shift the reasonable presumption of ear. under the florida law, he may be presumed to be fearful. this removes the responsibility to affirmatively show the necessity to take a human ife. thirdly, it has the unintended effect of encouraging vigilante is some that normal law revents. i discuss all of these issues at length in my written testimony. i also analyze the empirical evidence. to say that these laws decrease the incidence of crime, i think here are correlations there, ut i have not found causal evidence. stand your ground has little impact on homicide reduction. they appear to correlate with an increase in certain types of violent crime. time does not permit me more
a heavy burden in order to justify such an act. "stand your ground" law's like all self-defense laws require this heightened showing of necessity. the particular version of "stand your ground" law's which began with florida's 2005 law differs drastically from other "stand your ground" law's and from the common law of self-defense in three important respects. first, these laws are meant the common law duty to retreat. this has the result of emboldening individuals to escalate confrontation as opposed to an alternative rule which would be escalate confrontation and the duty to retreat in place the duty to safely retreat creates second, these laws shift the legal presumptions regarding reasonableness of one sphere it under a florida type law the actors presumed to be reasonably in fear of imminent death if he is in his home or automobile and this presumption abrogates the need for someone who is responsible for homicide to affirmatively demonstrate the necessity of taking another human life. third these laws provide the unity for arrests and civil liability. this has the unintended effe

. there is a better way, colleagues. is there-- my view parity between defense and nondefense. the rule of the whole -- theration debate rules were that you are going to cut defense and nondefense equally. to change those rules in the middle of this debate would be a very substantial mistake. what we do with respect to defense, we need to make an health,mmitment to education, infrastructure, and finance investment that will secure our future. those three areas, taxes, medicare reforms, and budget fairness strike me as three areas where we can come together and find common ground. i look forward to working with all of you. >> thank you. cliburn.yburn -- mr. the task of this committee is to an agreement budget. while it would've been prudent to have these negotiations last summer, i am pleased that we are now beginning these important discussions. address the automatic spending cuts that are hurting our economy and undercutting important priorities like education, medical research, and national security. ation'smust put our n fiscal house in order and reduce our debt to a manageable level. there are d
and replace sequestration in different wales. the house budget fully replaces the defense cut, lists the b.c.a. cap, and pays for that by cutting from key domestic vements -- investments. the senate budget pays for that with an equal mix of spending cuts and revenue caused by wasteful tax loopholes that benefit the wealthiest americans and corporations. so getting a bipartisan deal to replace quest racial is going to require compromise. there is no way around it. i am going into this budget conference ready to agree to some tough spending cuts that unlike the quester -- sequester caps that disappear in 2022, will be locked into law. i know there are some republicans that would be interested in swapping some of the infish and damaging sequester cuts with programs that would save many multiples of cuts over the decades. i'm ready to listen to their ideas. as long as they are fair for seen yoirs and their families, i'm ready to make some concessions to get a deal. commowmies runs both ways. while we scour programs to find responsible savings, republicans are also going to work with us to scou

. in fact, what you'll find it's really not a resolution for victims to constantly playing defense and stirring up the system. it's just possible. it's never going to be possible for an agency or a corporation to become impenetrable to the vast number of threats that we see today in our interoperateble dynamic environment. it might be possible if we bunker down and didn't connect to other systems and retain static environments. it's not the situation we're confronting here. what we're seeing is a failed strategy where our security gets worse. we have been predominantly focused on information sharing. and which the government hide under the table to lock the door. when it doesn't work, there are more warnings. the private sector is saying e don't mind being warned. i like being warned there's incoming. but i had hoped that while you were warning me you were actually going after the bad guys and taking them off the playing field. whether you're in schools it's a bomb drill in the old days. that's okay. i could hide under my desk for five minutes, five hour, maybe five days. it's been
